    (A) WMD

    (D) Oil

    ???






    Ok, you guessed right because it was me who asked: D, oil.


    "We're hooked on oil from the Middle East, which is a national security problem"
    (George W. Bush)
    Ya....I would not doubt that oil was certainly a factor. Considering how vital it is to our nation's economic standing, it should be a factor. If you want to shut America down, stop the oil. An unstable enviroment, or unstable leader, in the ME could certainly do that.

    I think there would have been risk with oil for going into Iraq and also a calculated risk if we had not. For example if we did not gone into Iraq. Then Iraq reinstated their Nuke program that Saddam has testified he was going to do. Then Isreal repeats its Nuke facility strike. Iraq takes it as an act of war. Now we are in a war without being fully mobilized for......and with Isreal in the center, it is a sure fire recipe for a host of nations to jump in on both sides. No doubt those siding with Iraq will stop oil sales with us. Our ecomony starts to hit the average american hard.

    So ya...I agree that oil should be a factor. Not politically advantagous to make it a priority point in an open forum as a reason, but a solid national security one.

    What do you think of Obadiah Shoher's views on the Middle East conflict? One can argue, of course, that Shoher is ultra-right, but his followers are far from being a marginal group. Also, he rejects Jewish moralistic reasoning - that's alone is highly unusual for the Israeli right. And he is very influential here in Israel. So what do you think? uh, here's the site in question: Middle East conflict
